In very good all matching condition we have an uncommonly encountered French WWIMle-M16 Berthier Rifle made in early1918. Incredibly this is actually matching!!! You just never see French Rifles of this era that are even remotely matching, they apparently just did not care. The bore is nice and it is marked for the Balle N cartridge.
During WWI these rifles were used by the in the front lines by the infantry and it is considered to be the main line French Service Rifle of WWI. These rifles stayed in Service throughout WWII as well and it is believed that this one is actually a WWII vet bringback. Finding French Military Long Arms in investment grade condition has always been a bit of a challenge so we are very happy to have this one on offer.
